It is an instant guide to basic techniques, including preparing surfaces, filling cracks, and the best way to apply paints and varnishes. It is a useful advice about the various types of paint such as matt, eggshell or gloss, as well as binders, diluents, varnishes, and wood stains, and their specific uses. It helps how to use painting tools and equipment for applying the paint, including brushes, rollers, pads, sponges and aerosols.
